gossamer and stardust

#Abecedarian Challenge

Top Story - January 2024

(picture created with NightCafeStudio)


always is my love for you,

bare beneath the moon, a

cadence singing softly as the

day drifts to dusky bloom.

evergreens bow down to us,

forever our hearts do pledge,

gossamer and stardust

hewn from galaxy's milky edge; yet

in my dreams you wander, my

jaded heart burns with righteous pain

knowing you won't return to me,

lies offered in vows now stained.

mindless, all-consuming rage and

never-ending woe, have

overwhelmed this ravaged soul,

please wake me, let me go!

quell these urges, dark and brutal

release the chains that bind, for

somewhere in this hateful haze

true love still gleams and shines.

unrepentant I will find you, waxing

velvet words to soothe the ache, with

wordless supplications holding

xyris sprung from tears and marshy lake

yield to me, oh demon dreams; let gentle

zephyrs sail me safely back to your embrace.


Thank you so much for spending your time with me :)

    I am blown away by the few entries I’ve read where I don’t even notice the abcs, hah, and yours is one of these! Elegant and appears effortless. How do you get your images etc or do they just flow forth? I’m so use to the free verse so any kind of rhyme and structure is daunting. Tips please. πŸ˜πŸ˜†
